Thick and rich Red Velvet Brownies that are so decadent and full of flavor!
Yesterday was one of those days. Yeah, you know. Those days were you know you should’ve gotten more sleep the night before than you did, but since you can’t reverse time, you end up going to Starbucks and ordering a grande PSL (it’s always pumpkin season to me) with two extra espresso shots. Yeah, TWO. And let me tell you, I was 100% awake for the rest of the day. I was able to do lots of baking in fact, and can’t wait to share with you what I have in store during the next week!
But for now, I have these babies *points at picture you see above, then realizes you can’t see me, or where I’m pointing, and downs another PSL*.
BUT SERIOUSLY. These brownies have such a vibrant and beautiful red hue to them! And are SO thick and gooey, which is something I have yet to see in most (notice I said *most*, not *all*) red velvet brownies. So I set a goal to turn that stat around and I got these rich brownies! Definitely something you’ll want to try only if you want the BEST BROWNIE EVER.
Well, maybe to me.
But really though.
Okay now I’m just rambling.
- 1 1/4 cups unsalted butter, melted
- 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons red velvet food coloring
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
- Using an electric mixer, beat together the melted butter, sugar, and cocoa powder on a low-medium speed until well combined and smooth. One at a time on the lowest speed, add in the eggs. Beat on a low-medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add in the salt, buttermilk, red food coloring, and vanilla and mix until well combined. Back onto the lowest speed, add in the flour. Slowly increase the speed and mix until well combined (about 1 minute).
- Pour the batter in the prepared baking pan and spread evenly. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before serving. Enjoy!
